So Much Fun!

Dustin and I were invited to Tina's Ethiopian Cafe by our new friends Ben and Aimee Woods. I "met" Aimee via an Internet group for trans racial adoptive families and immediately felt connected to her. It turns out they used to attend PV and are now at CCV. The Woods family is travelling this week to pick up their beautiful daughter Abby in Ethiopia. Last night was the first opportunity Dustin and I had to meet their family in person. What a treat it was. Ben and Aimee (and their kids Zoe and Luke) were a joy. They made us feel absolutely welcome and we just enjoyed rejoicing with another family during the excitement of the fulfillment of their hopes and dreams. It's Abby time in the Woods home and it was so much fun to be a part of it!

Tina's cooking was fabulous. Ethiopian food is hearty. Dustin and I both filled up much faster than we expected. We figure it's because you eat injera with every bite which is carb based. Injera is a sour dough-ish (not a technical term!) pancake like bread you use to pick up your food with. That's right no utensils in Ethiopian dining. It's so much fun! Hard to keep the kids clean though!

Thank you Aimee and Ben for letting us share in your celebration!

Dustin and I loved the idea of having a going away party at Tina's before we travel to pick up our own son. So dear friends I think we may plan on a similar event when the time comes for us to travel. Prepare to dig in and get your fingers dirty! We'll have a blast!

How exciting! That is so cool to hear about Ben and Aimee's new baby girl. They have got to be excited. I'm going to have to email her and catch up.

Can't wait to hear that's it's time for you to go pick up your son! It's going to be such a special time in your lives!
